Activity 3: Dilemma (10 minutes), Workshop 5: Fairness

In "Virtue Ethics," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Adapt the Leader Resource to include the dilemmas you plan to use in this activity. Make copies—for yourself, (optional) for volunteer role-players, and, if you wish, for all participants.
  • Optional: Review Workshop 4, Activity 3 and decide whether you would like the youth to role play one or more dilemmas. Find a space for the role play actors to rehearse, away from the regular meeting space.

Description of Activity

Youth discuss scenarios involving ethical dilemmas.

Seek a volunteer to read one of the dilemmas. Open the floor to reactions and answers. Ask participants if this reminds them of other dilemmas they have encountered or heard of, real or fictional. For each dilemma, ask "How could fairness play a part in this dilemma?"

If you have time, invite volunteers to role play the dilemmas, as in Workshop 4.
